Stumpy Runs Away

Stumpy Runs Away

Oil on Masonite Panel

I don’t know if you remember, but the last time we saw Stumpy he wasn’t the happiest of tree stumps.  Well I’m happy to say that Stumpy has since taken matters into his own roots:  he packed up his knapsack & teddy bear, put on his Sunday hat and ran away to join the circus!  I’m thinking he might make a good lion tamer, or maybe even a trapeze artist!  Wasn’t there a song about that?  “He glides through the air with the greatest of ease, that daring tree stump on the flying trapeze…”

This is my entry in the April Nibblefest contest, our theme this month is TREES!  Please click here to go to the auction.

Wonder Wibble

Wonder Wibble
Fighting for Truth, Justice, and the Wibbley Way

Traveling via balloon, Wonder Wibble conquers evil and injustice using super powers which manifest themselves through his mighty lunchpail and diaper. In other hands these are just commonplace tools - the lunchpail and diaper are nothing more than an empty bucket and a pair of Huggies. Not so for Wonder Wibble however, for whom the diaper is always empty, and the lunchpail is always full. Everything turns out ok once Wonder Wibble is on the scene, without fail.

Wonder Wibble is the leader of the Legion of SuperWibbles - if you look closely in this picture you can see other SuperWibbles in the distance on their respective balloons, flying off to fight danger and crime. As with all superheroes, their true identities must remain a secret.

This piece is my entry in the Superheroes show, because in truth, there is no superhero greater than Wonder Wibble.

Wonder Wibble was painted for the EBSQ Art Group's Create Your Own Superhero Exhibit, if you believe in Wonder Wibble and support his and the rest of the Legion of SuperWibbles' endeavors, please follow the link and give them a vote!
